  11. Vocabulary Notes Boyfriend/girlfriend= in English (unlike in many other languages), someone a person is in love with. An exception is when a woman refers to her girlfriends (friends who happen to be woman). Men don’t use the term boyfriends in this way. Except in the case of boy/girlfriends, students should be careful about the use of the terms boy or girl to refer to anyone over the age of 16 or so. Some people find it offensive.

  13. boss The person you work for (informal). More formal words Includeemployer, manager and director.

  14. co-worker Someone who works at the same company as the speaker. It implies that their job level is fairly similar.

  15. A hero Someone a person respects greatly . It can be someone famous ( real or fictitious) or a personal hero who is not well known but who the speaker thinks is great.

  16. smart Intelligent. It can also be used to mean “fashionable.” In some languages, it has come to mean “thin.” This is not true in English.
